Following the Giants Super Bowl victory last night Brandon Jacobs screamed into the microphone “We decapitated them. They can’t wear that crown no more.” Jacobs was talking about the Giants ending the reign of the mighty New England dynasty. This past game, a loss to Eli Manning and the Giants for the second time, ended the era of the Patriots as we know it. Jacobs was right, last night was the last stand and the king has lost his crown. The last time the Patriots won a world championship was in 2005 and it came as the 3rd one in four years. Since then the Patriots have won as many Super Bowls as the Jaguars, ending their season in the same manner as teams like the Eagles and Jets . The Patriots are now seven years removed from their last Championship season. Had the Patriots beaten the Giants back in SB XLII then their dynasty would have continued. But Tom Brady knew he and the Patriots were lucky to fight their way into this years Super Bowl. But with the loss comes another failed attempt to earn another championship. Another heart-arching loss to the Giants that could have easily bounced the Patriots way. Instead of 5 Super Bowl titles and immortality Tom Brady is faced with 2 Giant losses to Eli Manning and Tom Coughlin.
